My house is full of pumpkins! I mean, full.
The best way I enjoy them is by roasting them in the oven for 20 minutes or so, so that they cook and caramelize a little. I find them addictive, to me it is no different than having a piece of cake!
As they are plentiful at this time of year, I am cooking pumpkin almost on a daily basis. From sweet to savoury you can turn them into delicious meals.
I love carving them for Halloween but this time I tried something different and I carved peppers instead.
I chose orange peppers, to resemble the colour of pumpkins and stuffed them with mince meat. You can stuff them with rice and vegetables, cheese and cos-cous, anything you like.
If you are entertaining this Halloween they will look cute and bring a smile to your guest and by the way ...they are delicious too!
Have a nice weekend!

Cut the top of the peppers, wash them and remove all the seeds and filaments
Carve the peppers making the classic Halloween face
Mix the mince with the egg, 3 tbsp of breadcrumbs, salt and pepper, 2 tbsp of Parmesan cheese and the finely chopped parsley and garlic clove. Combine all the ingredients well
Stuff the peppers pressing the mince in. Sprinkle some Parmesan, then breadcrumbs and a little olive oil over the stuffing
Put the peppers in a the oven at 180C for about 50 minutes. Put the tops of the peppers over a kitchen foil and on a baking tray and bake them.
Serve the peppers with the tops on.
